The Immigration Resource network is looking at a unique way to help newcomers learn more about Northern Ontario lifestyle. Coordinator Marie-Josee Tremblay says they are working on a unique weekend camping trip.
“And we are going to give them the experience of how we do it when we go camping,” she said. “So we can share that experience with the newcomers and hopefully meet new people and socialize a little bit.”
Tremblay says she hopes to invite community residents as well as employers to the trip.
“By opening it to the community and by opening it to the employers, it gives them a chance to meet new people and make connections within the community as well with people who have the same interest as them as well.”
